History

20 YEARS OF INDUSTRY LEADERSHIP

Owned by Premier, Innovatix combines the power of $44 billion of purchasing volume with more than 20 years of group purchasing service experience. Always innovating, hence our name, we extend the deep discounts and hands-on service model we created for our 32,000+ healthcare members to non-healthcare-related business and industry market leaders.

Our Roots

Innovatix began as a healthcare group purchasing organization. Because healthcare revenues are largely fixed through rates set by insurers or Medicare and Medicaid, healthcare providers have long used GPOs to lower their costs and increase their margins. While they have specialized medical product needs, healthcare providers have many of the same requirements as big businesses—they need office supplies, computer equipment, shipping services, and credit card processing. Innovatix has grown its contract portfolio to meet all of these operating needs and more.

Recognizing the value we can bring to businesses that face different challenges but the same need to grow their margins, we created Innovatix Business & Industry to extend our purchasing expertise to non-healthcare organizations.

COMMITMENT TO ETHICS AND TRANSPARENT BUSINESS PRACTICES

At Innovatix, operating with the highest ethical standards and business transparency is a core value. We play a leadership role in industry groups that are devoted to ethical business practices. We also adhere to a self-imposed Code of Conduct that reinforces our commitment to delivering member value. In the spirit of transparency, we provide every member with an annual report that details its spending through our program and the associated fees that we have earned from suppliers.
